Brantley Road closed for repairs
The N.C. Department of Transportation has closed Brantley Road west of Old Salisbury-Concord Road in Kannapolis for emergency repairs due to an underground pipe failure.
NCDOT crews this morning discovered a concrete pipe beginning to separate in several sections, compromising the road’s pavement. Repairs are under way and are expected to continue through 3:30 p.m. Friday.
There is not a posted detour around the site. Motorists are advised to take Brantley Road to Old Salisbury-Concord Road, turn left to Main Street and cross over I-85, turn left to China Grove Road, and follow back to Brantley Road.
NCDOT reminds motorists to watch signs for construction information, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.
